The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA which determines the general policies of the Bar and approves its budget each year. The Board of Governors consists of the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, and members elected from each Congressional District and at-large.
Your Congressional District is listed on myWSBA (log in required). You can also enter your home address (or, if you live out of state, your agent of service address) on this Congressional District map. Choose "Congressional," click on "Find My District," and then click on the map next to the symbol marking your address.
Meet the President, President-elect, Immediate Past President, the at-large Governors, and your elected representatives.
The Board of Governors meets 7 times per year at locations across the state. Meetings are open to the public, except for executive sessions. Materials are available online before the meeting.
The Board of Governors is the governing body of the WSBA. The Board moves the Bar forward with an eye toward both its long-standing mission and guiding principles, and its short-term strategic goals.
A proposed amendment to Bylaws Article IV.E., Representation of the Bar, will be on the BOG's Consent Calendar for January 22-23, 2015. The amendment was previously given a first reading at the BOG's November 14, 2014 meeting. The proposed amendment clarifies that prior authorization to the Sections and other WSBA entities to speak for the WSBA or the WSBA entity may be granted by previous adoption by the BOG of a specific policy or by specific action of the BOG relating to a specific comment.
